OnePlus is yet again rolling out the OxygenOS 4.1.7 update to its OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones. What's new in the update? Well, the new version brings the much-awaited touch latency improvements to the two smartphones.
However, there is more. In addition to the quick touch feedback, the update also brings along battery optimizations and Android security patch for the month of August. And one more thing, users who have not updated Google Hangouts then the app will be automatically removed with the update.
Previously OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphone users had reported that there were touch latency issues with the smartphones. The company seems to have done some tweaks behind the scenes and thus have come up with OxygenOS 4.1.7 update. And with the new update, the company claims that it will bring enhanced system fluidity, better battery performance, and a good user experience.
The company in its blog also claims that they have fixed several bugs regarding the platform with the latest update. The fixes include:
- Sound channel error while recording videos.
- Call is routed to speaker accidentally by some 3rd party apps.
- Rendering issue in Indian Kannada language.
- App locker issue caused by some 3rd party apps.
Separately, a tweet posted by Carl Pei reads,"Saw some confusion about this: OxygenOS 4.1.7 for 3/3T does indeed come with touch latency improvements."
OnePlus says that the update will be rolled out as an OTA update. And this basically means that it will happen in phases and not all users may receive the update at the same time. The company said, "As always, this OTA will be incremental. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we'll begin a broader rollout in a few days."
